Default Target bargains

I was at Target last night picking up some packing items for our cruise to Alaska. I am using Calgon's packing list/suggestions and my husband really likes the idea of using backpacks and only checking one hard suitcase. Expecting to pay about $30 for a decent quality backpack, imagine my surprise when target had their "dublin trails" backpack cut in 1/2 from $30 to $15. I didn't want matching ones for my husband and I at first but I grabbed the last two. Who cares what it looks like if it does the job and I saved money. In addition I bought a hanging sweater organizer (wider than shelved shoe organizers) and a small toiletry bag that comes with soap and toothbrush holders as well as a compact mirror and pop up hair brush (it has a loop for hanging as well).

Just thought I'd pass the info along to the non-seasoned cruisers who don't have this packing thing down yet (or the very experienced cruisers who vacation so much they need new luggage).

Super ideas !! Thanks for the heads up. However, if you got the last 2, I'll just have to settle for something else now, won't I ?? ;-)

Who doesn't love Target?? They also have really nice coolers. They're soft but well insulated and have pockets for cell phones, money, etc...

I guess that would have been nice of me to post where Calgon's list is. But thanks to those of you that did. I loooove Target for picking up cruise stuff. The good thing is some of the stuff I buy can be used for camping as well (backpacks, travel size shampoo and moisturizers, swimsuits) and I get double use. I've packed away the stuff I just bought, that way all of my cruise only items are together and I don't have to go searching all over the house for things. One stop packing.

Thanks for the calgon packing tips. When I first saw your post, I thought "why would the calgon bath oil people have a packing website"?

LMAO!!! I thought the same thing when I read the website. I didn't know woman served in combat in the early wars (vietnam, WWII). Then it hit me when Calgon mentioned Mrs. Calgon.

You are lucky to have a Target store to shop in. In England there are no Target stores.
